150th Anniversary Mass

150th Anniversary Mass

Join us for a parish celebration of the 150th Anniversary of St Dominic’s Priory and parish! On 7th October 2017, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, we will mark 150 years since the Dominicans opened their Priory in Haverstock Hill in October 1867 and the first Masses were said on this site. The Archbishop of Liverpool, Malcolm McMahon OP, who grew up in St Dominic’s parish, will celebrate the Mass, and we will be joined by Dominicans and past parish priests of St Dominic’s. This will be a wonderful celebration for all who have known and loved St Dominic’s for generations, and also a worthy way to mark our first year as London’s Rosary Shrine.

We hope that friends of St Dominic’s, both old and new, will join us for this festive occasion. The 150th Anniversary Mass on 7th October 2017 will begin at 12 noon. All are very welcome. Please note that there will be no 10am Mass and devotions that morning.

Daily Adoration

Daily Adoration

“I want to encourage everyone to visit – if possible, every day – especially amid life’s difficulties, the Blessed Sacrament of the infinite love of Christ and His mercy. He is reserved in our churches but often abandoned. Visit Him to speak filially with Him, to listen to Him in silence, and to peacefully entrust yourself to Him” – Pope Francis.

Beginning on 14th September 2017, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed on the main Altar of the church for adoration. This will be done every weekday after the 7:30 am daily Mass (i.e., from around 8 am) until 9:45 am, just before the 10am daily Mass.

This is in addition to the Holy Hours at 7 pm on Wednesday (during the Youth 2000 Prayer Group); 5 pm on Thursday, and 10:30am on Saturday.

The Lord says: “Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:23). So, let us go to him, present in the Blessed Sacrament, and let us receive his mercy, his strength, and his peace. May the Lord Jesus renew and refresh our parish and all who come to this Rosary Shrine.
